What's On My Face // My Everyday Spring Makeup

I have never done a "FOTD" style post, so I thought I would do something similar and show you my current makeup look. I change up the eyes and lips a bit more frequently, but this is pretty much what I've been wearing for Springtime.

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
Benefit That Gal Primer
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation // Light Porcelain
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer // 1 Fair
Collection Pressed Powder // Ivory
Rimmel Stay Blushed! Liquid Cheek Tint // Pop of Pink
Sleek Face Form Palette (highlight and contour shades) // Fair
Mac Eyeshadow (for eyebrows) // Charcoal Brown
Benefit Gimme Brow Gel // Light/Medium
Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 Hour Gel Cream Eyeshadow // On & On Bronze
Mac Eyeshadow // Gleam
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (as eyeliner) // Blackout 
Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara // Waterproof Formula
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon // Plum Russian

I've been embracing a much "lighter" look recently, in regards to the colours I use. I would often rock more of a bronze eye, but in this warmer months it's been nice to go for a pearly shade sweeped over the lid with a soft liner in the form of black eyeshadow. As you can see, I have quite hooded eyelids, so my liner flicks are usually little as it's easier to do. When it comes to eyeshadow, I tend to pick and choose from any light shadows I have, but Gleam is a shade which I think looks lovely over On & On Bronze, and is the one I've been reaching for more.

I've also been wearing pink blusher, not using my usual peach or coral as often. I still love my plum lips usually associated with autumn and winter, but this particular shade is a more subtle way of doing so. All this plus a touch of highlighter and a tiny bit of bronzer gives me a pretty, fresh look for Spring!


  1. what do you use on your eyebrows? They look amazing x


    1. Thank you! I actually wrote a whole post on my brow routine recently (that was such a plug aha, sorry) but to put it simply I fill them in and shape them a little with Mac's Charcoal Brown eyeshadow then go over them with Gimme Brow from Benefit ^_^

  2. You look gorgeous! I love Rimmel foundations! :)


    1. Thank you! This is actually the only Rimmel foundation I own, but it's my all time favourite!

  3. You're beautiful! I love the Maybelline Baby Skin primer x

    1. Thanks so much! I'm not //obsessed// with it, but it does the job well!

  4. I love your brows! You've done them so well, I'm so jealous!
    The lip crayon looks much lighter on your lips than i thought it would be, it's really pretty! Can you layer it up to get a deeper plum or is that as dark as it goes?
    I'm having a giveaway atm over on my blog if you'd like to check it out?

    1. Haha, thank you! The crayon is a sheer formula but you can get a lot of colour from it. I wouldn't say I've applied it lightly here, but kind of middle-of-the-road? So to answer your question, yes you can layer it up for a deeper plum!

  5. I need to try the Rimmel Matte Perfection!

  6. Such a gorgeous look! You've reminded me to pick up some of the Colour Tattoo's and the Falsies next time I pop into Boots.

    1. Thanks! Aha, I take that as a compliment.

  7. Looks really good! I love your eyeshadow. I think I'll buy the Colour Tattoo one because I always see it and want it but it's quite pricey. I think we have a similar skin colour so this is good for me hehe :)
    The foundation looks really good, too. We don't have Rimmel in Germany, tho :(
    Also I don't think plum lipstick is for Winter ;)
    Have a nice day :3

    1. Thank you! That's a shame, the Colour Tattoos are pretty cheap here, under £5. Well, I don't think plum lips are just for Winter either, but it is nice to go a bit lighter/brighter for Spring!

  8. You look beautiful!
